Unfortunately there seem to have been a lot of deaths in the world of Showbiz recently, and I thought today I’d pay tribute to Alan Rickman. Whether you think of him as Severus Snape or Hans Gruber, his intonation and delivery were very precise and made him such a good bad guy. They also served him well in more light hearted roles, and today’s image reflects two of those: the Sheriff of Nottingham in Robin Hood Prince of Thieves, and Alexander Dane in Galaxy Quest. In both cases, his presence and delivery, coupled with comic timing, contributed massively to the popularity of the films I think. He will be sadly missed.
